Familiar faces will greet Potters Bar Town in the preliminary round of the FA Cup after the draws for the early rounds were made.

The Scholars will go to Aveley, who they didn’t have the best of luck against in two Bostik North Division fixtures last season.

Town were held to a 2-2 draw at Parkside in January before the Millers recorded a 1-0 win at the Pakex a month later.

Welwyn Garden City also enter the competition at this stage although their destination is not yet known.

It will either be Wivenhoe Town or Brantham Athletic who have to battle through the extra-preliminary round first.

Wivenhoe play their football at step six, two below the Citizens, in the Eastern Senior League while Brantham are a step five club, playing next season in the Eastern Counties Premier Division.

Both preliminary round ties will take place on August 25 with the extra-preliminary matches on August 11.
